. president obama seems very conflicted about what to do, and i'm not sure i can really blame him, but more and more cities and states are blaming obama care for cutting their government worker jobs and work hours. this ill-advised health care law is likely to cut more private sector jobs than the budget-cutting sequester. all of that and more coming up on "the kudlow report" coming up right now. ♪ ♪ ♪ >>> first up tonight's speaker of the house john boehner says republicans will not shut down the government over obama care. cnbc's john harwood has that story for us. good evening, john. >> reporter: congress returns in just over two weeks to a huge fight over government spending and debt. with no agreement in sight between the white house and congressional republicans, both sides are trying to prepare the ground for the battle and the economic bus tour president obama today tried to rally public opinion against a possibility of a government shutdown aimed at his health care law. most recently there's been threats that we would shut down the government unless we agreed to roll back the
. president obama says he hasn't made a decision yet, but that he is considering limited, narrow action in response to the chemical weapons attack. ed henry is at the white house monitoring the situation. ed joins us now. ed? >> reporter: andrea, good to see you. after days of laying low on syria, the president let his secretary of state, john kerry, take the lead on this issue twice this week. he came out a short time ago and spoke out, went after president assad in syria by basically saying this is a challenge to the world right now to step up and lead in the wake of this gas attack that killed, according to the administration, over 1400 people, mostly women and children inside syria. but the president now finds himself in a very difficult position. this is a nobel peace prize winner, someone that ran for president in 2008 saying you have to go to the u.n., you have to get congressional authorization before you act militarily. now standing alone on the world stage, pushing basically for unilateral u.s. military action, the president seeing his reset with russia, now in tatters at the
of folks were expecting president obama to come out and announce that they had decided to move forward unilaterally move forward without congressional approval, and that's not what he said. he said he has decided that military action is the right next step but that he is going to put the matter to a vote in congress, and of course we know in the past several days, more and more members of congress have been saying that they want a vote, and they think they deserve a vote before president obama actually launches any type of military strike, so it appears as though those voices have won in this case, so this will be put to a congressional vote. a couple things that stood out to me, craig. president obama saying that the chairman of the joint chiefs told him he is ready to move forward with military action, and that it's not necessarily time sensitive, that if this occurs in a month they would still be able to weaken assad's military capabilities. so that is one of the things that stood out. another thing, you didn't hear president obama say he was going to call congress back right now, a
to enforce a red line to protect an international norm, any decision by president obama to bomb syria will kill people. it will kill the guys working the nightschihift. people doing their jobs to put food on their family tables. daddy who went to work that morning will not be coming home because of what this president decides to do. the assad family will be okay, of course. the designers of that "vogue" magazine spread won't be angu h anguished by the sight of this thoroughly western family lying on the floor. no, the people who will die in an american cruise missile attack will be the working, praying little family people whose husbands do the scud work. war sucks. even in neat little bite-size act of war like the one that might come any day now. and, yet, and yet. how do we avoid this flagrant reality if we don't? those deciding in tehran right now whether to build a nuclear bomb are looking to see what the people in washington are doing. if we threaten the country, if it uses one weapon of mass destruction and goes ahead and ignores us, what worth does our threat hold against that
-american president standing on those same steps he did in 1963. here is president obama commemorating dr. king's dream and his lasting legacy this afternoon. >> on a hot summer day they assembled here in our nation's capital under the shadow of the great emancipator. everyone that realizes what those glorious patriots knew on that day that change does not come from washington but to washington. that change has always been built on our willingness, we, the people, to take on the mantle of citizenship, you are marching. that's the lesson of our past. that's the promise of tomorrow. >> okay, bob, you were particularly moved by this speech as you were by dr. king's speech so many years, 50 years ago. >> yeah. i think if dr. king had been alive today, listened to these tributes, i think he would have been -- first of all, he would have been amazed there was a black president, but i think obama did exactly the right thing. i think he talked about change coming from the grass roots into washington, not the other way around. i know there's been a lot of controversy about washington dictating from here
that it was revealed, the obama administration's nsa spy program is far more invasive than originally suspected. new polling data has emerged indicating this unprecedented invasion of privacy is taking a major toll on the president's popularity. >>> hi, everybody, i'm monica crowley in tonight for shaun. we'll have much more on the brand new approval numbers from karl rove. first, let's take a look at the explosive revelations at the white house. the national security agency's security network has the ability to spy on 75% of all u.s. internet traffic. in addition, quote, it retains the written consent of the e-mails sent between citizens within the u.s. and also filters domestic phone calls made with internet technology, but that's not all. according to newly declassified documents, the nsa was rebuked in 2011 by a secret court for collecting thousands of e-mails from americans. the agency admits those e-mails had absolutely no connection whatsoever to terrorism. here's why the story is so critically important. number one, nsa officials admitted to the journal that the systems' reach is so broad do
,. >>> good evening, everybody. thank you for being with us. barack obama as senator and candidate often mocked the foreign policy of president george w. bush. but as president himself, obama cannot escape his mounting foreign policy folies and he and his administration and the american people are now bearing the embarssing consequences.% . former egyptian president hosni mubarak, president obama helped force him from power more than two years ago, today was ordered to be released from prison by an egyptian court. to be released within 48 hours. mubarak's release is another slap in the face for mr. obama. it follows the ouster of the muslim brotherhood from power and mr. obama's president of choice, mohamed morsi. the violent and deadly clashes between the military-run government and muslim brotherhood and, in fact, -- have backed protest to the wall and they are responding. continuing with violence and all likelihood this friday wn morsi supporters reportedly will conduct what tey call a day of martyrs. and no relief for president obama in syria either. assad opposition forces claiming
for tuning in. tonight's lead, commander in chief president obama and this country can's allies are nearing a decision on whether to strike syria over the regime's alleged use of chemical weapons. at this very hour, top administration officials are briefing members of congress about the situation there on the chemical attacks that left hundreds dead. and what our military options are. but taking this country into war should never be done with a rush to judgment. and the president made that clear. >> what i've said is that we have not yet made a decision, but the international norm against the use of chemical weapons needs to be kept in place. we are consulting with our allies. we are consulting with the international community. and, you know, i have no interest in any kind of open-ended conflict in syria. but we do have to make sure that when countries break international enormous on weapons like chemical weapons that could threaten us, that they're held accountable. >> yes. someone needs to be held accountable. and the rationale for a strike isn't cut and dry. as the associated press repor
with president obama's national security team moving forward with the syria plan. in an unusually hectic friday before labor day, today saw a flurry of conference calls and meetings on the crisis. if there are any doubts the u.s. will strike despite the fact that the president insists he's made no decision. this is president obama just a short time ago. >> we cannot accept a world where women and children and innocent civilians are gassed on a terrible scale. i have said before and i meant what i said, that the world has an obligation to make sure that we maintain the norm against the use of chemical weapons. >> much earlier, the white house made public its unclassified intelligence report. the assessment of the syrian government's use of chemical weapons on august 21st is, 2013, determining that 14g 29 people were killed in the chemical weapons attack, including at least 426 children. and this afternoon, secretary of state john kerry went before the cameras making an impassioned case to punish assad. >> we need to ask, what is the risk of doing nothing? it matters because if we choose to live
, despite the tough rhetoric from the whourks president obama has still not announced a decision about what, if any, military action he's going to take against the syrian regime. i'm tucker in for sean. earlier today, the administration released part of an intelligence report and moments later, the president had this to say. >> as you've seen, today, we've released our unclassified assessment detailing with high confidence that the syrian regime carried out a chemical weapon that killed well over 1,000 people, including hundreds of children. this kind of attack threatens our national security interests by violating well established international laws against the use of chemical weapons by further threatening friends and allies of ours in the region like israel and turkey and jordan. and it increases the risk that chemical weapons will be used in the future and fall into the hands of terrorists who might use them against us. so, i have said before and i meant what i said, that the world has an obligation to make sure that we maintain the norm against the use of chemical weapons. now, i have
as we are a day closer to a potential show down with syria. a few hours ago, president obama sat down for an interview with pbs news hour and said he has not made a decision on syria. let's watch. >> again, i have not made a decision. i think it is important that if, in fact, we make a choice to have repercussions for the use of chemical weapons then the assad regime which is involved in a civil uh war, trying to protect itself, will have received a pretty strong signal that, in fact, it better not do it again. and that doesn't solve all the problems inside of syria. you know, it obviously doesn't end the death of innocent sieve yan -- civilians inside syria. we hope political transition can take place. we are prepared to work with anybody -- the russians and others -- to try to bring the parties together to resolve the conflict. but we want the assad regime to understand that by using chemical weapons on a large scale against their own people, against women, against infants, against children, that you are not only breaking international norms and standards of decency, but you are cre
. >> president obama spoke briefly to reporters shortly after kerry made those remarks. he was less emphatic, his message was similar. >> part of our obligation as a leader in the world is making sure that when you have a regime that is willing to use weapons that are prohibited by international norms on their own people, including children, that they are held to account. >> the team of u.n. weapons inspectors invest galting tigai attack have now left syria. pentagon officials tell nbc news that five guided missile destroyers are in the eastern mediterranean sea and nearly all of the targets have already been loaded into the warheads of some 200 tomahawk cruise missiles. a strike would be limited and tailored to syria's chemical weapons program. president f president obama were to order such a strike it will come without support from great britain. prime minister david cameron suffered a humiliate regbuk in parliament after they voted against military intervention. cameron says he will honor their wishes. france's leader says they are in, and he -- any american strike would also come without the

and terrorism. this is a statement. i'll read it to you, congressman. president obama is advocating his responsibility as commander in chief and undermining the authority of future presidents. the president does not need congress to authorize a strike on syria. if assad's use of chemical weapons against civilians deserves a military response, and i believe it does, and if the president is seeking congressional approval, then he should call congress back into special session at the earliest date. the president doesn't need 535 members of congress to enforce his own red line. you totally disagree with peter king. tell our viewers quickly, because we're out of time, congressman rangel, why he's wrong and you're right. >> peter king i thought was on the right track when he said the president should call back the congress. but this whole idea that he doesn't need 535 -- at least i hope he's saying we need the majority. to an extent of what his belief is, it's 135th of the united states congress. so i respect him or anybody else who believes the president is authorized to attack another count
. he has done it to damascus, now he is doing it here. president obama today drew a red line here at home. any republican who tries to bring this country into the default, fails to pay interest on the national debt is the enemy. there will be no deals, the president says, no talks, no schmoozes, no bedtime stories, no nothing. you are cut off. america will pay its debts. it will not default. it will not destroy its credit in the world. and you can threaten. you can scream and yell, but the united states government will not fail in the bankruptcy because of this economic terrorism you on the right purport to be a political philosophy. well, the secretary of the treasury said it less dramatically this morning, but said it just as clearly. any attempt by the right wing to threaten this country with national default will be met with the strongest response, no deals. bashar al assad in damascus, but against those in this country who would jeopardize the country's financial strength. joining me right now are two political pros, democrat steve mcmahon, and republican john fayry. treasury
. then senator obama answered that question by saying, the president does not have power under the constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation. i pressed jay carney on that point today in the daily briefing and also, meanwhile, republicans like john mccain tonight are saying, if there is going to be military action, it cannot be a symbolic action, backing up the president's rhetoric about a red line, it's got to be serious action that decimates assad's military. take a listen. >> do you believe that exists right now? >> i believe it is a threat to the united states. i believe that absolutely allowing the use of chemical weapons on a significant scale to take place, without a response would present a significant challenge to -- a threat to the united states national security interests. >> if it's simply that we launch some cruise missiles and do that for three gayes and not have a significant effect on the momentum on the battlefield. it will have a -- an unhelpful effect. if we do it right, and

is beginning to take shape around, yes, of course, the repeal of obama care. and last night at a heritage foundation defund obama care event in texas, senator ted cruz tried to rally conservatives. >> what happens next is president obama and harry reid are going to scream and yell those mean, nasty republicans are threatening to shut down the federal government. what has to happen after that is we've got to do something that conservatives haven't done in a long time. we've got to stand up and win the argument. why is it that every reporter in the media and a significant percentage of republicans assume with an impasse that president obama will never, ever, ever give up his principals so republicans have to give up theirs. if you have an impasse, you want to know one side or the other has to blink. how do we win this fight? don't blink! >> by the way, cruz was heckled at that event by people saying they wanted health care as well, but there were more supporters, as he said, than there were hecklers. earlier, though, former u.s. senator jim demint and president of the heritage foundation sa

that the syrian government has used chemical weapons against civilians, president obama has asked the department of defense to prepare a variety of military options in response to the situation in syria. at least two senators are also calling for military action. elizabeth prann is following the latest on that. >> hi, shan n no. president obama and the international community has said the damage has been done. this as they agreed to allow inspectors to the outskirts of the city of damascus where the alleged chemical weapons were deployed. a senior u.s. official says it leads to a lack of credibility which begs the question what action if any will the president make? the officials say the president is waiting to make an informed decision about how to respond. some lawmakers say it is time to take action now. >> we have to act rather quickly. i think the horrific killings of people, murdering his own people and he has been doing it for awhile now, but obviously the gas that was used to kill his own people, i think we have to respond. rehave to respond in -- we have to respond in conjunction with o
